The biggest hunting and outdoors expo is coming to the San Angelo Coliseum, and just in time for Father's Day. The expo is June 7th, 8th and 9th with over 100 vendors participating. Americans spend over 145 billion dollars annually on hunting, fishing and the great outdoors, so it makes sense that businesses that cater to the outdoorsman will gather their collective resources to keep more of those dollars here locally. Mark your calendar, start saving your mad money and put on some comfortable walking shoes because it appears that the West Texas Hunting & Outdoorsman Expo will be a lot of fun.

With the amount of money spent in the outdoors industry, it's no surprise that the 145 billion dollars are spent annually in America and that number continues to grow. With hogs multiplying at an epidemic rate and the fact it's always open season on wild hogs, coyotes and varmints it's expected to continue growing.

The latest census data accounts for 2.9 million hunters and anglers in West Texas alone. $6.2 billion are spent in hunting and fishing yearly, roughly $4.9 million for fishing equipment and roughly $4.5 million in hunting equipment alone. The West Texas Hunting and Outdoorsman Expo is comprised of over 100 vendors.


So, what's your favorite? Bass fishing, fishing in general, deer hunting, hog hunting, dove, quail or maybe just spending some time on the lake or camping with family and/or friends. Whatever your likes are, you're likely to find it at the West Texas Hunting and Outdoorsman Expo.
